With just nine days left in the Spring legislative session, Governor Bruce Rauner is urging lawmakers to come together and pass a balanced budget along with some of his proposals. Governor Rauner is reiterating his call for things like worker’s compensation reform and a property tax freeze which he says are vital to improving the state’s economy.
The state has been without a budget for more than 10 months now. The legislative session ends May 31st. After that date, it requires more votes to pass bills, making the process event more difficult.
